Want payback? Vote for Scott Brown!
By Howie Carr | Tuesday, January 19, 2010 | http://www.bostonherald.com | Columnists
Go Scott go.
This election is payback, for everyone in Massachusetts who has to work for a living, who isnt on the dole, or a trust fund. Its for everyone who hates getting dozens of robo-calls from clueless pols pushing Marsha Coakley and from union thugs living large off your union dues.
Vote for Brown if youre tired of the 25 percent increase in the sales tax, and the brand new 6.25 percent sales tax on alcohol, on top of the 37 percent excise tax.
Send the hacks a message.
Vote for Brown if they ignored you when you voted for the death penalty, and to cut income taxes, and they wouldnt even let you vote on gay marriage. If youre still waiting for your property tax cut. If youre still waiting for the attorney general to send a corrupt pol - any corrupt pol - to the can.
Send them a message.
If youre old and worried about the Medicare cuts theyre proposing, if youre young and dont want to pay the fine for not having health insurance, if you have a good health-care plan and you dread paying Obamas 40 percent tax. Marsha - er, Martha - had a message on TV yesterday morning for everyone who falls in those three categories:
They are wrong.
Thats what these people always say. Youre wrong, theyre right. Nothing to see here, move along. And make damn sure you pay your taxes, and forget what Obama said about not raising taxes on anybody making under $250,000. That was then, this is now.
On Sunday I called Coakley Mike Dukakis in a skirt. I would now like to apologize to Mike Dukakis.
Did you see this woman on Ch. 25 yesterday? Does she ever take her foot out of her mouth? She claimed shes been running a positive campaign - you know, like Chuck Schumer calling Scott Brown a teabagger. Then she said her big problems have been bad weather and the holidays - Christmas, in other words. You should check out the whole thing. Shes not standing for the big insurance companies, even though she went down to D.C. last week to pick up some cash from them.
You want irony? Do you realize that if the state Democrats hadnt changed the Senate succession law twice in the past five years, they wouldnt be in meltdown mode this morning?
Their lame (soon-to-be) lame-duck governor could have appointed whatever stiff he wanted.
Irony? Heres another one: Steve Lynch, the congressman from Southie, was basically kicked to the curb by the unions because he wasnt gung-ho enough for their scheme to destroy health care. Maybe he couldnt have won the Democrat primary last month, but a couple of things you can say about Lynch.
Unlike Martha, he knows who Curt Schilling [stats] roots for, and he also knows that there are still terrorists in Afghanistan. Come to think of it, Ill bet he can also spell Massachusetts.
This is Martha yesterday on the voters she says are wrong: I think theyre gonna send someone to Massachusetts who has a proven record.
That would be you, Martha. Youll be the one we send to Massachusetts. Scott Brown well send to Washington.
